Hello. I've been working by myself for 3 years, and have one underling, but I really wanted to get some real experience. Any suggestions on what I should train in?

First you should find out what is available in your area.

How exactly are you teaching someone else when you haven't had proper training yourself?

I just taught what I knew already from books I'd read. Also, I am better than a friend of mine who had training in ninjutsu.

Laf is right. The first step is to find out what's available in your area. Legitimate training oppurtunities are few and far between. Most folks don't have any choices at all. A few lucky folks have two oppurtunities in their area. Unless your willing to drop everything and move, the general advice is to find what's available in your area, research the credentials of the dojos you do have access to, and go from there.

If you let us know where you are, then we might be able to suggest things in your area.

Thank you laf for your respected advice.To let you know, he's not as much a student as he is a training partner. I also thank you, Mr. Mahan.

Hi, Im new to Iaito, have just bought some books on it. Theres no dojos anyway near where i live so i suppose im unlucky not being able to give it ago. I live in england and dont know of any dojos around here, I am going to america on holiday in march so maybe i can go to a dojo for a week [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG] [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]. But i can still read up on it and learn stuff off here.
